The top-seeded and unbeaten-untied Champlain Valley Union High girls soccer team opened a potential fortnight of tournament action Wednesday (after the Observer’s press deadline) by playing host to 16th seeded Brattleboro Union High.

The Colonels came up from the south hauling a 3-8-3 record.

A victory would have coach Stan Williams’ unit at home Saturday afternoon against the winner of Wednesday’s contest between eighth seed Rutland High and ninth seed Mount Mansfield Union.

While a first round bye might have been nice, Williams had no problem with his team playing in the opening round.

The last all-winning season for the CVU girls was 1996.

That 14th and final regular season triumph came Saturday, a 4-0 thumbs upper over Bellows Free Academy in St. Albans.

Lady Lightning Haliana Burhans scored twice to lift her season goal total to 22. Freshman Sierra Morton and Megan Gannon also fired goals.

Goalie Maddie Turnau ganered her 11th shutout, making one save.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
